Land question and some others...

  A land that has tap, and then an ability such as search your library for a basic land and put it into your hand or on the battlefield.  If it is one of those lands, can you still use that land for a colorless mana instead of sacrificeing it?

  What is the purpose of Ghostly Flicker?  Why would you want to exile your own cards?

  Guttergrime - if one creature dies then a counter goes on it and a 1/1 slime token is put onto the battlefield.  Another creature dies, another token goes on Guttergrime, then a 2/2 creature comes on to the battlefield?  What happens to that 1/1...does it become a 2/2 also?  Does it stay a 1/1 but there is now a 2/2 slime token as well?

  The blue creature Clone.  It comes in as a copy of target creature.  If that target creature has an enchantment on it does Clone copy the creature as it is without the enchantment or does it copy it as it is with the enchantment?  If the opponent has an enchantment out that gives their creatures +0/+1, and the opponent has a 2/2 creature on the battlefield...would Clone be a 2/2 or would it be a 2/3?

  Can Clone copy a planeswalker in order to get rid of an opponents planeswalker?

  Thanks for all your help.

If you're talking about cards like Evolving Wilds, those don't have any mana abilities.  You're only option with that is to fetch a land.

 What is the purpose of Ghostly Flicker?  Why would you want to exile your own cards?

More of a Cards & Combos question than a rules question.  However, when a creature changes zones, it becomes a new object with not memory of its previous existance.  If someone targeted your creatues with Hex, you could save two of them by targeting them with Ghostly Flicker.

 Guttergrime - if one creature dies then a counter goes on it and a 1/1 slime token is put onto the battlefield.  Another creature dies, another token goes on Guttergrime, then a 2/2 creature comes on to the battlefield?  What happens to that 1/1...does it become a 2/2 also?  Does it stay a 1/1 but there is now a 2/2 slime token as well?

Both will be 2/2s.  The creature's P/T changes when the number of counters on Guttergrime changes.

 The blue creature Clone.  It comes in as a copy of target creature.  If that target creature has an enchantment on it does Clone copy the creature as it is without the enchantment or does it copy it as it is with the enchantment?  If the opponent has an enchantment out that gives their creatures +0/+1, and the opponent has a 2/2 creature on the battlefield...would Clone be a 2/2 or would it be a 2/3?

1) It doesn't target, you just choose a creature for it to copy.
2) Copiable values are those printed on the card (as modified by other copy effects), not bonuses from Auras/Equipment.
3) If the Planeswalker is a creature at the time Clone ETB, then yes.  If not, then no.  Planeswalker's are not normally also creatures.

no, see Naya Panorama for one that can.

lots of reasons
1) reuse an enters the field ability eg.Manic Vandal or Mulldrifter or Spine of Ish Sah
2) block an opposing attacker with a tapped creature (normally, a flickered creature comes back in untapped)
3) stop an attacker from hitting you by blocking then flickering your blocker (only works if the attacker doesn't have trample)
4) save your creature if it's targetted by a spell or ability
